What you need


How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Photocopy the body, leg, and diamond templates and cut them out. Using the templates as guides, cut two body pieces and 16 leg pieces from the black felt; cut two diamond pieces from the orange felt.

Step 2

To make each leg, pin two leg pieces together and sew; using the knitting needle, stuff tightly with fill. Sew the body pieces together, leaving a small opening for the fill. Stuff the body, and sew the opening closed.

Step 3

Glue the two diamonds to the top body piece to make an hourglass shape. 

Step 4

Place each leg on the body with the open ends sandwiching the body; hand-sew legs to the body. Next, sew the body to the center back of the T-shirt; tack along contour of the body to stabilize.
